## NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 14 Practical Geometry Ex 14.3

Question 1.

Draw any line segment PQ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯. Without measuring PQ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ . construct a copy of PQ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯.

Solution :

**Step 1.** Given PQ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ whose length is not known.

**Step 2.** Fix the compasses pointer on P and the pencil end on Q. The opening of the instrument now

gives the length of PQ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯.

**Step 3.** Draw any line l. Choose a point A on /. Without changing the compasses setting, place the pointer on A.

**Step 4.** Swing an arc that cuts l at a point, say, B. Now AB¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ is a copy of PQ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯.

Question 2.

Given some line segment AB¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯, whose length you do not know, construct PQ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ such that the length of PQ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ is twice that of AB¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯.

Solution :

**Step 1.** Given AB¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ whose length is not known.

**Step 2.** Fix the compasses pointer on A and the pencil end on B. The opening of the instrument now gives the length of AB¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯.

**Step 3.** Draw any line l. Choose a point P on l. Without changing the compasses setting, place the pointer on P.

**Step 4.** Strike an arc that cuts l at a point, say, X.

**Step 5.** Now fix the compasses pointer on X. Strike an arc away from P that cuts l at a point, say, Q. Now, the length of PQ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ is twice that of AB¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯.
